The Earthborn


The Earthborn

by Paul Collins

“I insist that if you read only one science fiction book in your life, read The Earthborn” Donna Jones ─

“... certainly worthy of sitting on the same shelf with early Heinlein and Norton” Don D’ammassa ─ Chronicle

“The Earthborn manages to avoid the mundane by fast-paced narrative and believable young characters, a combination which will clearly appeal to his intended read audience” Jeff Popple ─ The Canberra Times

“This is a book which can be read on a number of levels: as a challenging social comment or as a gripping adventure story. Here’s hoping that the sequel is not long in coming”. EB – Viewpoint

“The story is fast paced and reminiscent of John Marsden’s Tomorrow series. This is a worthy edition to a school library collection”. Lesley Boon ─ Fiction Focus
